Farmers review damage after hail

Posted: Updated:

Following devastating hail, several farmers are reviewing the damage of their crops.

Several people reported downed trees and wind damage in the Denver area, but farther north, the hail slammed crops.

Near the intersection of Larrabee Avenue (Highway 63) and 210th Street, the remains of some crops were barely recognizable, especially on the west side of the highway.

Farmers in the area had corn and soybeans planted. 

Experts reviewing the area say some of the corn crops could be salvaged for livestock, but it's far too late to replant.

However, experts were debating whether it's too late in the year to replant the soybeans.

Farmers with soybeans say they have a few days to decide whether to replant soybeans to wait for the soil to dry.

Several farmers in the area say they had insurance, but weren't directly covered for hail damaged.
